Top things to do in Edinburgh

There are so many fun activities in Edinburgh whether you're looking for something free to do, things to do with the kids, or a romantic weekend away. In the summer, experience the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and some of the many fun things to do at night. If you're visiting at any other time of the year, Edinburgh is still filled with beautiful nature (and even some wonderful hikes for a bird's eye view of Edinburgh), medieval landmarks, and several other noteworthy attractions. The sights, along with some of the friendliest people in the world, make Edinburgh a destination that will surely leave you in awe for a long time. Here are some of the things you shouldn’t miss when you visit Edinburgh.

Museums in Edinburgh

During earlier times, Edinburgh was nicknamed “Athens of the North” by Scottish Enlightenment thinkers due to the abundance of art, literature, science, and philosophy in the city. At present, this is still evident through the world-class cultural institutions that can be found in Edinburgh. You can find out more in the guide of our top picks of museums in Edinburgh.

Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art

Made up of two big buildings separated by Belford Road, this Edinburgh art museum is sure to keep you occupied for a few hours. Inside you’ll find an amazing permanent display as well as temporary exhibitions so there’s always something new to see. Look for sculptures, paintings, drawings and decorative arts.

Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art bag policy

The art gallery has a maximum bag size allowance and nothing can be carried on your back. Although they do permit items like purses and diaper bags, leaving your bags with us is an easier alternative to carrying them around the museum. 

The Writers’ Museum

Edinburgh has an impressive literary heritage being home to successful authors including Sir Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Robert Burns. Come celebrate their lives and works at the Writer's Museum which features notable attractions like the Waverly printing press or the desk where Robert Burns used to write.

The Writers’ Museum bag policy

Although this museum’s bag policy isn’t specified, it’s best to not arrive carrying large suitcases. Even if you are permitted to bring them in, pulling a bag behind you will take away from your experience.

National Museum of Scotland

Home to everything from dinosaur skeletons to Tibetan prayer wheels, the National Museum of Scotland has it all. The museum’s contents and the building itself date from different time periods throughout the city’s history, and if you’re interested in learning about Scottish heritage there’s no better place to go.

National Museum of Scotland bag policy

Although this museum does offer luggage lockers, they can’t accommodate very big items. There’s also limited availability for item storage.

Shopping in Edinburgh

There are some excellent places to shop in Edinburgh. In fact, there’s a wide and eclectic range of options for those who want to get their retail therapy on. From large brands and upscale department stores to independent boutiques and novelty shops, there are plenty of retail choices to explore.

Ocean Terminal

Located on the waterfront right beside the famous Royal Yacht Britannia, Ocean Terminal is the biggest shopping center in all of Edinburgh. The complex also hosts several restaurants with fabulous views, bars, and even a cinema. Look for Scotland’s flagship clothing store Superdry, along with H&M and Trespass.

Cadenhead’s Whisky Shop

One of the things that Scotland is known for is high-quality whisky, and perhaps the best place to get a bottle would be at Cadenhead’s Whisky Shop. The shop is one of the first independent bottlers in Scotland (and the last surviving one!), making the product you buy an exceptional one.

Herman Brown

If you're looking for vintage items and antiques, this is the go-to place in Edinburgh. Owner and founder Anna Nicholson travels to different parts of the globe for some rare finds – from vintage clothing to jewelry.

After you’re done exploring these local shops don’t forget to take advantage of our many luggage storage options near these shopping locations. Drop your shopping bags off at one of our storage providers and enjoy the rest of your day in the city.

Dining in Edinburgh

Over recent years, Edinburgh has seen an increase in tourists who come to enjoy the local culinary cuisine, whether that's a delicious dinner, one of Edinburgh's best brunches, or the fantastic street food available during the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

If you have no idea where to start, check out our top restaurant suggestions in Edinburgh:

Aizle

The restaurant, with a name that stands for “ember” in the Scottish dialect, explores the concept of “bistronomy” – local food in an informal setting but with a menu that’s made for fine dining. From beef tartare to hand dived scallops to elderflower and gooseberries, the unique ingredients of every dish make for an incredible meal. 

Timberyard

This Scandinavian-themed restaurant is located in a former warehouse and has gradually built its reputation as one of the best places to dine in Edinburgh. The menu is crafted from locally sourced suppliers — be sure to try the quail or cheddar gougeres. 

Mary’s Milk Bar

Found in the buzzing area of Grassmarket, this local eatery features a range of cold treats with eccentric flavors, such as brandy mince pie-flavored gelato or sweetcorn and black pepper sorbet. The chocolate and gelato are lovingly made every morning.

Don’t let anything distract you from a unique Edinburgh dining experience. We offer many luggage storage services around the city so finding a convenient location will be easy. 

Left luggage Edinburgh Waverley train station

Located on Prince's Street in the heart of the city, Edinburgh Waverley Station brings people in and out of Edinburgh from across Scotland, as well as from around the rest of the United Kingdom. There are plenty of things to do in Waverley station, and if you're looking for a left luggage storage location you’ll see that there are station lockers offered right here. However, these services are only offered at certain times and aren’t always big enough to accommodate heavy luggage.

Can I store my luggage at other Edinburgh train stations?

Yes, a number of the train stations in Edinburgh have luggage storage companies and lockers on-site or within walking distance. These include Waverley, Edinburgh City, Royal Mile, Castle, Canongate, and Haymarket Station.
